The United Nations Disability Inclusion Strategy (UNDIS) was launched by the Secretary-General in June 2019 to raise the United Nation’s (UN) performance on disability inclusion across the organization. The Strategy provides the foundation for sustainable and transformative progress on disability inclusion through all pillars of the UN work in peace and security, human rights, and development. The strategy aims to ensure that the rights of persons with disabilities are valued, dignified and respected in the workplace. The emphasis is on a fundamental shift to find an enabling environment in which to fully and effectively participate on an equal basis with others. United Nations Country Teams (UNCTs) are requested to report on the implementation of the UNDIS.
The vision of the Disability Inclusion Strategy prosed by the Resident Coordinator’s Office (RCO), the Disability focal points and members of the United Nations Partnership on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNPRPD) includes the development of an annual work plan to ensure the roll out to the strategy in Namibia. Special attention is given to key UNCT activities and to source the services of a consultant, to conduct a Disability Accessibility Audit of the UN House in Namibia.
